I have so much pain in my feet, , wrist and knee & legs. Im on Trama-dol hcl 50 mg and Morton. Also prednisone 10 mgs What other meds help with this problem ? ## Hi Binny, What type of pain are you dealing with exactly? Just general pain, or pain from arthritis? If you're able to give me more detail, I can definitely do some research and look at the other options you have. Until then, I would like to recommend acupuncture and essential oils. There are studies that can prove the accuracy of both those methods for pain. I've personally had acupuncture performed on a painful nerve in my foot and it helped tremendously. Essential oils are also beneficial in conjunction with massage therapy. I'll post a link to a page that provides information about certain oils used for pain... ...

I'm wondering what is best med for s1 protruding disc and a pinched nerve until I can get into pain management for the steroid IV's ## HI, Amy! Sorry that you're in pain. However, there's really no way to say what the best pain medication would be, because what works for someone else may not work for you. What has your doctor advised? Much of it is also going to depend on your overall health and your tolerance to any given class of medication. Have you ever taken opiates, before? ...

Lyrica for S1 Chronic Nerve Pain
2 Replies RSS
For years now I have been taking 4 tramacet and 2 lyrica every day. The side effects are weight gain, a bit of finger and arm numbness and sleep disturbance. On the good side the tramacet is all that really works on nerve pain (S1 root damage chronic) and the lyrica takes the second edge off the pain. If you are careful it should be ok. Always best to eat something with these two medicines. You have to slowly taper off either of them. No sudden stops because a sudden stop can cause seizures. ## I took Lyrica for 2 hrs for periphiel neuropathy pain and then it turned on me making me unable to see, bad uneasy feeling and kidney cancer and failure. I am scared to death to take even 1 -50 mg! And the withdrawal! Felt like I was burning alive! Ought to be against the law! the only drug that ... ...

I am having pain in my tailbone and left buttock while sitting. The X-ray plates show ' lumbar lordosis lost'. I have been to an orthopaedic surgeon who advised me to take hot sitting and Hifenac - MR. along with antacid. please advise. Gautam Sil ## Hello, Guatam! How are you doing? What problem do you have with the medications that you were advised to take? A doctor is the person best qualified to evaluate your medical condition and to let you know what your treatment options are, if any, and to prescribe the proper medications. The lumbar lordosis is the arch of your lower spine, where it curves inwards, just above your buttocks. Losing that would probably cause the type of pain that you're experiencing, because it's pressing on the nerves in your spinal column in an ... ...

Doctor who prescribes pain meds Minnesota
Post a Reply
Hi, I had a work injury back in 2012 and now have three herniated discs and nerve problems. I have been to pain management who have done injections and radiofrequency ablations but with little success. I can't take Ibuprofen due to a bypass and reflux issues and tylenol doesn't help. I was being given Vicodin but now no doctor will prescribe it due to all the new laws and problems with abuse and addiction. I have been faithful to my primary and pain management doctor and even have my insurance on board to make sure I am a faithful patient and not an abuser. So I am in desperate need to find a doctor who doesn't tell me to go home, put ice, heat and rest or take tylenol. I have tried all the options besdes surgery which I was told wasn't the best option due to my age. Ple... ...

which painkiller would be best to try for more relief ; need a step up from Hydrocodone 750/7.5 . Don't want to take more of the Hydrocodone than is recommended and it just is not doing very well for me now . I have a killer stenosis in my back and the siatica nerve is really making even walking much more painful these past few weeks . Thoght maybe I could get some thoughts on this site . Thanks , JoJo ## Have you talked to your doctor about it? One choice may be Oxycodone, it is a very potent narcotic, but you'd probably be able to start off with a relatively low dose, if you've never taken it before, which leaves you somewhere to go, if you build up tolerance to it. There is a Vicodin/Norco product that has 10mgs of the Hydrocodone in it, but if you've been taking that... ...

what kind of pain medicine do they make from marijuana
1 Reply RSS
I have periphial neuropathy my feet hurt all the time nonstop. A friend talked me into trying a few(4) puffs of marijuana and it stopped the pain completely. I live in alabama so it is ilegal. Is there a medication made from it that is legal here? ## Hi Gene, You might be thinking of Cannabidiol (more commonly know as CBD). This aspect of the marijuana plant is legal across all 50 states and has been proven to be useful for pain management without the "high" that comes with THC (another component of the plant/buds). Your best bet would probably be to search online for it, as I noticed several places that have it available. A close family member of mine is actually taking a 50/50 THC/CBD concentrated spray that helps with her nerve pain. I realize you can't get the THC legall... ...

I am going through therapy for my back and need spine surgery. I have been taking percocet for the past year now and my Dr wants to change my medication. He suggested something that starts with the letter N but didnt spell it right for me. Does anyone know of pain medication that starts with that letter. Not Naproxen, it's not an anti inflammitory ## pain medication ## its suppose to be for nerves ## probaly Neurontin which is used to ease nerve pain. ## Maybe norco or narco ## Those would be my best guesses, as well, since they are both used to treat pain, just in different ways. Neurontin is an anticonvulsant that's also been shown to help with nerve pain, it contains the active ingredient Gabapentin. And Norco contains the active ingredients Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone, so ... ...

Gabapentin and weight gain
2 Replies RSS
I take 600 mg. of gabapentin (3) times a day for nerve pain. For me it has been a miracle drug. I do have difficulty if not almost impossible losing weight and have even gained some. It has been worth the trade off to be able to feel better. Does anyone know how to counteract this? ## Hi Agnes, Sorry to hear about your challenges with Gabapentin. According to the National Library of Medicine, rapid weight gain happens to be a general side effect of this medication. I'm not a doctor, but coming from someone with an athletic background, the best advice I can offer for counteracting it would probably be to follow a strict diet and exercise program. Something that you can commit to as long as you're taking the medication. I would also recommend drinking plenty of water (making that ... ...
